Mexico peace convoy arrives in Ciudad Juarez: "CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — A Mexican convoy protesting violence triggered by a military crackdown on drug cartels has arrived in Ciudad Juarez, on the final leg of its 3,000-kilometre journey.
The peace caravan of about 20 buses, led by famed poet and journalist turned protest-organizer Javier Sicilia, reached Mexico's most violent city late Thursday, greeted by mariachi players and hundreds of well-wishers." AFP

I monitor and analyze international press on Mexico, with a focus on security, immigration, human rights and social movements for peace and justice, from a feminist perspective. And sometimes I simply muse.
